2021-07-12 CO2 To Syngas Using Sabatier Process

Read Applications section for pilot plants that use CO2 to make CH4 that can be used in the existing natural gas system. Also it’s being used to power a fleet of cars. Only problem with CO2 capture to syngas is that it doesn’t permanently remove the CO2 from the atmosphere. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabatier_reaction Quote: << The Sabatier

2021-06-10 Researchers Find New Way To Generate Electricity

This very interesting and promises to capture CO2 from the ocean and turn it into rock. https://scitechdaily.com/mit-engineers-have-discovered-a-completely-new-way-of-generating-electricity/amp/

2021-05-18 Hydrogen Replacing Methane Pros, Cons

This Youtube video Engineering With Rosie interviews a chemical engineer who talks about the problems of replacing some or all of the natural gas with hydrogen. Hydrogen has higher energy per unit weight, but it is much less dense than methane so it has much less energy per unit volume. The natural gas system has

2021-05-18 Tesla Vs Conventional Cathode Production

There is speculation among viewers about what is going to be put into the ‘landfill pit’ being built next to the building at Giga Texas. Some say it’s a landfill; others think it’s too shallow for a landfill. I was reading the following article and noticed that the conventional cathode production has a lot of

2021-05-07 Relithiation To Make Old Batteries Like New

If the old cells were made easier to take apart and reassemble it would be helpful. I think that someday the battery makers may do what Eagle Picher did for batteries on spacecraft. There is a container of electrolyte inside the battery. To activate the battery a small charge blows the electrolyte out of the

2021-03-30 Aus Scientists Achieve Brkthru Carbon Capture

This method captures CO2 and stores it on calcium carbonate and produces green hydrogen at the same time. It can use treated seawater. Article has a link to the research paper. The world needs carbon capture on a massive scale. This is interesting because it accomplishes both green hydrogen generation and CO2 capture. https://www.pv-magazine.com/2021/03/30/australian-scientists-remarkable-renewably-powered-carbon-capture-breakthrough/

2021-02-18 EV Batteries Charge In 5 Minutes

They say the problem is ‘range anxiety.’ The batteries can charge 100 miles in 5 minutes. This is one of Hashem’s videos. The references are in the pinned comment. https://www.facebook.com/693504594115135/posts/2330587737073471/?app=fbl
